Dr. Jones' research aims to improve health outcomes for vulnerable populations, namely sexual minorities, sufferers of prolonged grief, and emerging adults on mobile dating platforms. They also investigate health information seeking behavior of college students, which is especially important due to information-inconsistencies during a time when personal independence and concurrent personal health decision making may be increased. Jones directs the Heath Promotion Center at York that not only functions as a collaborative research hub, but also serves the greater York College community with lectures and referrals to health services.
